Treatment & Disposal
Brine management options may include treatment followed by disposal. Treatment desalinates brine and produces a more concentrated, lower volume fluid or solids which are easier to transport or dispose of. Disposal involves discharging brine to sewers, surface water, injection wells, or sending it to environmental service providers.
Saltworks’ brine management experts can help you to understand your treatment and disposal options, including discharge regulations and economics for your process.
Understand Brine Chemistry
Water chemistry analysis is essential to understand key brine management factors such as salinity, scaling potential and content of metals or other contaminants. Our team can manage this analysis for you, perform feasibility testing, and develop a treatment solution that meets regulatory requirements, maximizes plant performance and up-time, and minimizes maintenance costs.
Maximize Membrane RecoveryEffective brine treatment firstly requires maximizing recovery of lower cost membrane systems—such as reverse osmosis (RO)—before additional treatment or disposal. The next step is comparing disposal options against thermal treatment, to decide whether to further concentrate your brine or treat it down to solids. We supply extreme recovery membrane brine concentrators comprised of our XtremeRO products coupled with our BrineRefine precision chemical softening systems.
